If you feel that you've been improperly infracted, you should talk things up with the mod that issued you the infraction and see what you did wrong, instead of posting a whole thread complaining about the action.

Basically do what Zach and Sydian said, if you think you got wrongly infracted you should privately contact the mod who gave it to you.

Otherwise, try asking a higher staff member, like a smod or admin.

Talk to the person that gave you the infraction instead of posting here. No one can really help you but the person that issued it or a higher staff member. But I'll go ahead and say that trying to spread the word on a Pokemon forum that IV and EV training being banned isn't gonna net you any positive feedback.

First off, IV and EV training are natural game mechanics that have been openly recognized by Nintendo. I'm a bit too lazy to draw up proof for the former, but for the latter, there are lots of places and items within the games themselves that are specifically geared to those ends. I don't think banning the discussion of a natural game mechanic will be well-received around here.

As for infractions, if you believe you've received one unfairly, try talking reasonably with the moderator that gave it to you. If the warning/infraction was issued for something minor, or there was a misunderstanding, they might lift it if you're reasonable about the whole thing.

If you feel that there is a genuine problem afterwards, take it up with a super mod or another senior member of the staff. As with before, using a reasonable and neutral tone gets you really far, really fast.

That's really all I've got to say on the matter. Hopefully your problems will be resolved soon.

As said, first contact the staff member that gave you the infraction via PM, rather than complain here about it. If you want further feedback after that take it up with a higher up.
